deja vu all over again. president obama says raising the debt ceiling needs to be done in order to avoid a government default and he wants congress to solve that problem. but he says he's not going to be pulled into a debate about it this year. republicans, however, may want to fight. they may tie the debt ceiling to spending cuts if they haven't -- that they haven't gotten so far. they see it as an opening and going to happen at the end of february when the debt limit comes up along with mandatory reductions in spending. >>> the fiscal cliff tug-of-war ends with pork, a lot of it. >>> plus big brother on the bus? how many muni plans to keep a close eye on its riders in the coming year. >>> a new push to stop mass shootings and the stockpiling of ammo. our conversation with congresswoman nancy skinner coming up next.

street journal." let me start with you, president obama says the debt ceiling is nonnegotiable. but republicans in congress are going to use it as a negotiation tactic. you always say that government needs to get out of the way and let businesses grow. isn't not raising the debt ceiling to pay for bills already incurred. standing in the way of the economy? >> well you know, ali, you said this, the republicans view this as a good tool to try to discipline spending. i don't think they view this as a good tool. but i think they kind of view this as pain the only tool they have right now to try to get president obama to negotiate on spending cuts. as you quite correctly said, we just live heavied through the first of these cliffs, which was the fiscal cliff. we got by that one. democrats feel they had their day there and they did, they got their tax increase. republicans are still wondering when are we going to get around to reforming these big giant entitlement programs and maybe disciplining spending on the discretion aye side, i think there will be a showdown on the debt ceiling
these extreme positions. it also seems that barack obama -- in a house, he does not need republicans to pass a piece of legislation. that is what you see republicans having to use the only bargaining chip that they have, which is the debt ceiling. maybe if there was more compromise between the democrats, mitch mcconnell talking about a one-term president and all that kind of stuff, but if they could work together, you would not see the republicans try to take these kinds of drastic measures. host: thank you for the call from california. guest: i have great affection for my friend here, jim manley, and he has great affection for harry reid, but i think harry reid has been a disaster as a leader. there is not -- they do not allow for real debate on the big issues. the fact that they have not passed a budget in three years in the senate is one of the most irresponsible acts. we need a budget more than ever. we need to have a sense of where the spending is going. we need a debate on the senate floor about this. we just have not had it because the senate majority leader is doing his best to shiel
says there won't be any negotiating t. needs to be raised -- period. what do you think? >> i think it's remarkable. it's as if the election meant that president obama has been elected king. the republicans compromised on a very important principle. they didn't want to raise taxes. president obama wanted to raise taxes, they compromised. now president obama is issuing a no-compromise to the congress, to the american people -- 48% didn't rote for president obama. it's very disrespectful. he should try to bring the republicans together and show leadership and agree if the debt ceiling needs to be raised, the issue has to be addressed. >> no serious people who have talked about the damage that would be inflicted on our country were the debt ceiling to not be raised, not only on our country, but the global economy. yet, as far as political tactics, the president saying,im not going to debate this. is that the right way for this president, as he gets set to kick off term number 2, to engage his colleagues on the other side of the aisle? >> you certainly want the president to be open. i thin

"i think president obama failed in the one test america had for him, which was to unite the country. i think he needed to be more hands-on. i don't think he's done enough to think broadly and come up with solutions that would engage both sides in a reasonable dialogue." so how specifically does he fix that right now, and how can you help him? >> i think the first thing in the last segment you saw leader -- the minority leader talk in ultimatums. we all need to stop talking in ultimatums and say only these, you know, narrowing the debate, put everything on the table, start working together, that's what you do in america in every small town and every business in america. you don't rule out anything. >> the president has got an ultimatum and says he's not going to talk about spending cuts over the debt limit. >> i think -- i think what we need to do is stop talking in ultimatums and start talking about how we resolve the issue with a sense of urgency, and so tha
, they are certainly welcome to do that. but i don't care if a president -- and, listen, barack obama has had republican cabinet members. george bush had democratic cabinet members. i like bipartisanship. i would like to see more of it. i think we need more diversity in the next cabinet, and so far what we're seeing is a lot of white men, but the president is allowed to pick whom he chooses, and if he chooses a former republican senator to be his next secretary of defense, the senate ought to have a hearing, investigate it, and give it an up or down vote, period. >> chip, in terms of the bipartisan appeal, do you think that is a significant factor here? do you think by doing this the president tries to rise above the rancor that exists on capitol hill? >> trying to do bipartisan support by nominating a former republican senator who balked his own party and backed the democratic candidate in his own state is not the way to do it. senator graham said we'll have a hearing and see what happens. it's going to be tough to get chuck hagel confirmed. when a few senators decide it's not going to happe

the house is not moving at the speed it needs to. but i also want to say one other thing, david. republicans ought to quit worrying about president obama. the president's going to be president. the house ought to worry about being the house. senate republicans ought to worry about being senate republicans. let the president deal with reality from their side. the house has no obligation to pass a cr -- the continuing resolution on the president's terms. it has no obligation to pass a sequester of the president's terms. i think those are both much better fights than, say, a debt ceiling. the debt ceiling guarantees a crisis. it guarantees that the markets will all cave in on the republicans. and the republicans in the end will give up. >> let me get a break, ej, and we'll come back with you. i want to talk about the strategy, whether there's a government shutdown in the future, as well as what this fight means to the president's second term and his agenda -- fight means to the president's second term and his agenda -- guns, immigration, other thin a, at a dry cleaner, fight means to the presid
